How to recycle / dispose nail polish

  1. Pour the remaining nail polish onto a piece of scrap newspaper to allow it to dry.
  2. Leave the cap off of the bottle and let the residual polish dry out completely.
  3. Once the paper and the bottle are dry, place them into your regular household trash.

Nail varnish bottles can’t be recycled. Even though the bottles are made of glass, the nail varnish inside is very difficult to remove, and the bottles are generally so small that they are filtered out during the recycling process. Throw your empty nail varnish bottles, including the brush, into your rubbish bin.

Generally How do I dispose of empty nail polish? Your local Household Hazardous Waste facility is the best option should there still be product inside the bottle, simply type it into Google to find your nearest facility. Unfortunately with nail polish and gel polish being largely un-recyclable, its always a good idea to get the best use out of your polishes.
